Sandringham Hotel

- Sandown, Isle of Wight -

Family run since 1971, we are a well established hotel located directly on the seafront in Sandown Bay on the Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of England, with glorious uninterrupted sea views and sandy beaches literally a stone’s throw from our front doors and balconies.

Facing due south, we are superbly positioned to watch the sunrise over the English Channel with stunning views of Culver Cliff. Sandown is and always has been a popular seaside tourist town, and is well situated for your visit to the island.

varied selection of room types means we’ll certainly have something for you with both sea and land views; double rooms to small or large family rooms, not forgetting our superior balcony rooms and family suites. If you’re on a budget we have standard rooms too.

There’s lots to keep everyone entertained – mainly our indoor pool and whirlpool, though we are in easy walking distance to so many popular attractions and amenities.

The indoor swimming pool is heated and there is also a whirlpool (big hot tub) for your leisure time, so remember to bring your swimming costume! We also provide pool towels.

Horizons Kitchen & Bar has panoramic sea views looking out across the English Channel over the horizon, and offers tasty and traditional meals, a wide variety of wines and an attentive service from the head waiter and his team.

The bar is always well-stocked featuring your holiday favourites, with a range of draught and bottled beer and cider, wines, spirits, soft and hot drinks and bar snacks available.

You can enjoy the sea views and watch the boats sail past whilst relaxing in the large and comfortable lounge or there’s a terrace if you’re a sunseeker. If it’s a rainy day, there’s a 50″ smart TV too.

The Court Jester games lounge is a great new space for both adults and kids to enjoy with pool and football tables, TVs, games/fruit machines for the adults and a comfortable area to relax and watch the waves.

We have on-site parking for around 30 cars and an off-site car park 200 yards away for 50 cars – both are free of charge. EV charging is also available on a first-come, first-served basis.

So… we think that the Isle of Wight is perfect if you’re looking for a stay-cation for your summer holiday, short break or quick getaway with your family, friends, on business or a special occasion and we have it all to suit your needs and budget!

The Guestbook

"Took a group of 10 families here on a charity holiday in May half term. This is about the 10th year we have done this, and the first time since Covid. It’s still a great place. We had a family room each, all with a sea view balcony offering fantastic views over the beach and out to sea watching the ships on the horizon. The rooms are clean, well appointed and beds comfortable. We had the half board option and the food at all meals was great. The don’t offer a separate children’s menu for dinner, which as children’s charity we were a party with many children. However, Barry was amazing and then organised a children’s option for dinner for the rest of the stay. Vicky is brilliant at reception - from arranging the booking, our many queries and special requests and coping with all of us throughout our stay. She is kind, thoughtful and caring - a great welcome at the hotel. The bedrooms and the public areas are clean and tidy and the large spacious bar area enables our group to socialise in the evenings and still enable other hotel guests to have their space. The young people in our group loved the pool table and the indoor pool was used by many too. Steve the Beach Hut man opposite the hotel was amazing too and he provided sun beds, wind breaks and a beach hut which made visits to the beautiful sandy beach; so memorable. It’s a great base to go out from to discover the wonderful island. Thank you everyone at the Sandringham. We will return."
